Concerns regarding secure and/or privacy-aware software development increase. In order to attain such concerns, security and/or privacy have to be addressed in the whole software development life cycle, especially from the early stage of the software development life cycle.
This workshop aims to bring together researchers and practitioners in the areas of modeling for secure and privacy-aware software development to exchange ideas and preliminary results.
Several sessions on related topics will be organized where researchers give presentations of their work followed by in-depth discussions. A plenary session will discuss future research themes in this field.

Since the proceedings will be published by Springer in the Lecture Notes in Computer Science (LNCS) series, authors must submit manuscripts using LNCS style. The page limit for submitted papers (as well as for final, cameraready papers) is 10. Manuscripts not submitted in the LNCS style or exceeding the page limit will not be reviewed and automatically rejected. A paper submitted to this workshop may not be under review for any other conference or journal.
